My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

 “belle of the ball”


the sun smiled at me today

a flash of reflection

in a mirror on the wall

only a wink

just a blink

after a storm,that was all

it took me by surprise

it dried my rainy eyes

and made me see

from the shadows

beneath the clouds

a single face

among the crowds

the cramped places

and the blank spaces

between wasted chances

when the music plays

but no one dances

then suddenly

in the mirror

blinding sunshine

flashes on a wall

or in a dream

either way

I was dancing a waltz

with the belle of the ball
